FC Nantes travels to Thaon, this Sunday, in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France (6:30 p.m.). Here is all the essential information about this match.
“Go ask Sochaux and Amiens what they think. » Antoine Kombouaré did not go there by four paths to warn his men before the trip to Thaon in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France, this Sunday (6:30 p.m.). For its career – prowess against two Ligue 2 clubs – as much as for the context, this National 3 team hopes to create the feat against the Canaries. With a winter cold likely to level the values, the conditions will be met for the small town of the Vosges, which will evolve at the Epinal stage.
“It’s a solid team, which gives few opportunities to the opponent, strong defensively, assured Kombouaré again. They are an aggressive team in the good sense of the term, which likes duels. We have to expect a fight given the conditions we are likely to have. I warned my group, it’s not a trap if you know what to expect. We talked about it, we’re going to do some video editing, we’re going to show them what to expect there. We must prepare well for the conditions that we will have and especially for the commitment that this team of Thaon will put in the match, “said the technician again, who will be deprived of Blas, Pallois, Traoré, Simon or even Merlin. The decor is set.
